It’s remarkable when you can find a beer that has a huge richness of flavor but doesn’t have a lot of alcohol. Das Wunderkind hearkens back to the Belgian ales of yore, a time when lively yellow ales like this one were brewed for hydration as well as enjoyment. Smelling of funky, fruity esters, Das Wunderkind alerts the nose of the yeasty properties of this beer. On the tongue, the ale has a sour bite like vinegar and citrus rolled into one. The finish is smooth and satisfying. Known for their delicious oddball concoctions, Jester King clearly has what it takes to work with these strange yeast strains. Though not easy to find these days, Das Wunderkind is definitely worth seeking out.

Bottle @ tasting, courtesy of me, thnx to Secret Santa for this one! Pours a hazy golden beer with a small white head on top. Aroma is slightly peppery, spicy Belgian saison yeast, some tartness in there and a crisp fruity note as well. Flavor is fairly bready, again loads of yeast present, some dried fruits and a peppery aftertaste. Decent take on the saison style, with a nice JK twist to it. Very nice surprise.

Pours a hazy soft yellow with minimal head. Nose is barnyard, floral hop, bit tart, lemon, pineapple and tropical fruit. Taste is wild yeast character, a bit bready, bit tart, barnyard, bit of lemon/lime zest. Overall crisp and refreshing, a bit dry on the finish. Thin mouthfeel without being watery. Very drinkable. I like it a lot as a wild, it's not really a saison to me, doesn't have those classic saison notes. I'm rating it as a wild. Das ist gut. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the brewery. Aroma of lime zest, floral, and barnyard. Pours hazy blonde with great film and solid carbonation. Taste is wonderful. Light lemon/lime zest, pepper, barnyard, and a clean yeasty finish. Crisp, tart, and clean. Just a perfect session saison.
